I have a question that ive had for a long time…. Who is the rider of the white horse in Rev 6 seeing as the lamb is opening the scroll?

Greetings! I was a Jehovah’s Witness for about 22 years. I left because the hypocrisy and frequent falsehoods, told by the WT Society, became too much for me to bear. My first inclination after I left this organization was to plummet into agnosticism. As a cell biologist, however, I was agnostic for only a little while. Each time I looked through a microscope and saw cells dividing, I was reminded of all of the complex chemical reactions that make mitosis possible. I’ve studied the brain extensively (as a graduate student in the Dept. of Neurological Surgery, University of Washington) as… Read more »

Hello Brothers and Sisters 🙂 So glad to have found you all. Im an ex JW, freshly uprooted (disassociated myself) I have been reading this site day and night and cant tear myself away. What a grand banquet of spiritual food Ive stumbled upon! I will feast for months just on the archives!
Love to all

How do become a member

I’ve finally found a place to call “home.” This has everything I’m looking for. I love God’s word, and am definitely not atheist or agnostic. I think it’s so sad many exJWs immediately turn to that. Perhaps prayer and study are so much a feature of such a controlling organization that those leaving cannot consider those things without feeling revulsion. I’m a PIMO, still in, with a husband who is all in. I hope to wake him one day. I’m not leaving without him. Previous attempts to test the waters have not been promising. He’s been trained to protect the… Read more »

I want thank you so very much, for all the knowledge from Gods word.. I am new at this.. but it is what I need for I do not have anyone to speak to..

Lena Moore

I’m new to this forum, but I feel that a prayer was answered, when I saw so many strange things happening in my congregation, the way the sisters looked at me when I told them how sick I was for a month and I prayed to Jehovah to send someone to “oil” my head and no one came. Not one of the 7 elders we have came to check on me. My husband is not a believer, I was very ill, I couldn’t speak, but I could call out Jehovah’s name. the only thing I could do. When I finally… Read more »

Hello Lena,
Many here, know what you are going through and understand that you will yet go through a range of feelings – extreme sadness, anger, excitement, relief, the list goes on.
In your situation please take things slowly and don’t feel you need to share with members of the congregation too quickly what you are learning. You can get a lot of support from forums like the site that is related to this one – discussthetruth.com
And of course the material on this site and beroeans.net have very valuable resources.
Christian love David

Vi y escuche tu testimonio en YouTube, me impresionó tu valentía con que trataste el tema de Los Testigos de Jehová.
Díos ilumine tu camino y sigue hablando con la verdad, ya que ésta te hará libre.
Bendiciones!!

Like to ask questions.

Speaking of God’s name I came across this link that was posted on the Jehovah’s Witness Topix site, that renders God’s name in a slightly different way.

Just do a search on-line for papers entitled “Jesus Christ I SPEAK TO YOU AGAIN”

This material is interesting reading to say the least.

The Christian Hope: Life in the Land of the Promise Made to Abraham The gnostic idea of a immortal spirit residing in a celestial world after death is still present in Christendom today, including the Watchtower organization. We as Christians are heirs to a promise! The promise to Abraham was to inheret the Land of Isreal. Jesus, and the Bible writers were Jews and they were grounddd in these promises and it is evident in their hopes and promises. Galations 3:29 Moreover, if YOU belong to Christ, YOU are really Abraham’s seed, heirs with reference to a promise. Consider that there… Read more »

The name Jehovah is a made up name by a Catholic monk named Raymond. Why use a name you cannot pronounce. In Ezek 38: 23 God says “I …will magnify MYSELF and SANCTIFY MYself and make MYSELF KNOWN Read who we are to preach and who God has been pleased to make known in Col 1:27 &28

in your beliefs you say there is only one class not two yet you say the chosen ones will rule with Christ, and the earth will be filled with people isn’t that two different hopes and classes

It would be interesting to read an article some time about what you’ve learned from web-site analytics. (For example, it surprises me that your “Find Friends” map shows so many participants in countries where English is not the first language, but surprisingly few in most of the western United States; and there is nobody on the map from Mexico and South America.)

Today is my first day seeing your site. It is a comfort to know I’m not alone in my understandings. I appreciate the fact that the articles I’ve looked at so far are well written, scriptually supported, and not categorical/judgemental. As none of us have been appointed as prophets, we can err at times. For that reason, we cannot be categorical and must listen to others if they have strong biblical proofs. On some websites it appears that ex-JW’s like to bash the organization and their brothers. Frankly, I feel that sarcastic bashing is a form a judging, and the… Read more »

For the sake of transparency, what are the actual costs of running this website? When donations are accepted, many would like to know where the money is going.

You are apostates

why are you here then? Obviously you do not trust what you know to be valid

I can’t help wondering if it’s really a good idea to encourage people to go to Reddit or Tumblr. Would a Christian not be better employed concentrating on studying God’s Word which, as JWs/exJWs, is an obvious requirement. Getting involved in these websites could be very time consuming and not very productive, I think.
